is it will increase -- by not raising the debt ceiling, you should be able to raise taxes on the wealthy, making $200,000 a year or more. host: ok. anthony in greensboro, north carolina, independent. caller: good morning. i have done quite a bit of research on the debt. what i don't hear from anybody, whether from the politicians or people asking questions, is the fact that the united states over the last 10 or 15 years has overwhelmingly started bases all over the world. over 1200 bases. and i cannot get a direct answer to actually how many. each would bring in the amount of money well over $1 trillion in just the maintenance. along with that, on the far side, after deep search, i discovered that the united states in the last eight years, since 1998, i believe, through nasa, they have come to believe in some kind of solar scenario along with an economic scenario and have been spending a lot of money in creating bases or underground cities in preparation, which is understandable, as any other nation, including japan and china have been doing themselves. host: next we will hear from a democratic calle
that dividend taxes were going to go up dramatically. even down to the last day of december. you come in, dividend taxes barely go up. i find that, like facebook, which we're going to talk about in a moment, we're not really privy to what's going on. it kind of drives me crazy. we're in a democracy and you're supposed to know. but i do feel that when i look at spain, when i look at france, when i look at germany, i look at the united kingdom they do not get caught up in this kind of wrangling. they are better governed nations right now. >> that's easy to say, i guess, when your comparison seems to be what is a completely dysfunctional congress at this point. jim, how do you go about trying to gauge how to even play this? you look at what happened over the end of the year, the fiscal cliff. and at the end of the day you might take away, well, they did get something done and the markets reacted positively. look at the rally in the first week of the year. do you approach it the same way? it seems to be to a certain extent we're not ignoring it, but at least saying i'm not going to -- >> i d
's not as big as it was. the payroll tax holiday was allowed to expire. the fiscal cliff, this isn't a new tax. it's a return of an old tax but it's playing havoc with domestic stocks. so is all of the partisanship that makes our country seem like a mickey mouse place to invest and uncertainty going forward, every single democratic government on earth seems to be better organized and smoother functioning than ours. that uncertainty caused by that lack of confidence and higher payroll taxes might have something to do with the declines we're seeing. telco was a place to hide back in 2012. at&t and verizon saw slow downs. no let up in the subsidies to apple and samsung, we love these companies because they had no europe last year, no china, no mexico. now we wish they had all three and there was business formation. let's focus on the other half of the equation. it's a little more robust, where the money is going. last night china had one more remarkable session. holy cow, courtesy of new attitude. the gold double digit growth is taking up the fxi. follow along, but it is taking up the ancillary c
debate, it can be far harder to solve than the taxes, we think the market can be down for a while, and before it comes back up. >> so you're looking for a decline, and perhaps that is an entry point for some. do you agree with that? >> i think any decline is an opportunity to buy, maria. i'm very, very bullish on u.s. equities and one of the main reasons i am the u.s. energy story which i think is a story that's not being told as well as it should be. in 2012 the u.s. oil production was up 16%. that was the biggest year over year increase in u.s. oil production since 18 at which just happens to be when we started producing oil so if we think about what's going on. we have right now -- right now we produce oil at 80%, the same price the rest of the world does. we produce natural gas at 25% of the price the rest of the world does. we have cheap energy here in the united states and we feel that will drive manufacturing back to the united states, create jobs, and when all this political stuff is over, that's going to be a big story that we'll talk about ten years from now. >> these ar
that fiscal cliff deal where dividend taxes just went to 20%. a lot of upset and anticipation that it would go higher but 20% is a great number. >> exactly. >> steven hammer, setting some highs of the day right now. you're bullish at least for the short-term here, how much higher do you go? >> i have no doubt in the next six months. we could potentially see anywhere from a 5% to 10% increase in the u.s. stock market, but we need to be cautiously optimistic, and to us it's all about earnings and it's all about volatility which is why we wait based on risk, and investors need to be cautious to where they invest money and they still need to stick with quality. >> okay. hank smith. what's going to take us to these new highs, do you think? >> well, look, i think we've seen in the beginning of this year finally some money coming out of bond mondayfunds going i equity funds. for five years it's been just the opposite so perhaps we're at the very beginning of what could be a very powerful trend providing a ton of fuel to the equity markets, and we agree. look, dividends are still very attractive, as l
of hasandy aid bill up for a vote. xlees with tax breaks for rum distillers? i need a drunk. >>> i'm kry is tal ball. are we turning our kids in to narcissists? >>> a dope. lance armstrong comes clean to the queen of talk but who needed the interview more, lance or oprah? >>> i'm shooting straight coming to guns. ready, aim? "the cycle" is on fire. >>> the house is back and getting serious about the constitution. members spent 1:05 reciting the entire u.s. constitution. it's the basis of our government, of course, but this is only the second time ever the entire document was read aloud in the house. >> we the people of the united states in order to form a more perfect union -- >> no person except a natural-born citizen shall be eligible to the office of president. >>> the powers to all cases of law and equity. >> full faith and credit given in each state to the public acts. >> congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the united s
? >> we like income. the dividend tax rates would go up dramatically in 2013. as the market moves on, take some money off the table, what we found the last three years is if you bought with the s&p is under the moving average, your average gain is 45.3%. if you bought when it was over the moving average, your average gain is 1.5% per year. i still think it'll be a back-and-forth market. take some profits in the euphoria. david: we think about what is happening inside the beltway. it is a global market. it is becoming more of a global market. you see global trade is really taking off in 2013. that leads to tremendous opportunities if it happens, right? >> i think so, david. evaluations are compelling whether it is europe, china. emerging market and even in japan. on the way to unlock the valuations and as investors come around to realizing those risks are receding, you will see a compression of the equity risk premium allowing evaluations to expand. david: lets michelle and she won one of those countries, japan. some people say this new leader going in the opposite direction of the free mar
jersey and connecticut, these three states pay almost 16% of the taxes collected in the united states of america. >> some house conservatives favored amendment offered by south carolina mick mulvaney to pay for $17 billion in disaster relief cutting discretionary spending across the board by 1.63%. >> it's important to me that the money goes to the folks who need it very badly. it's so important to me,be that i think we should pay for it. >> the amendment failed. key new york democrat says paying for disaster relief cutting elsewhere would be a first. sandy victims should get their aid. >> i wantbe to repeat this point again. united states of america we respond to disasters. all americans respond to disasters. we don't ask for off-sets. >> with the nation's debt at $16 trillion and counting, conservatives say it isn't about bashing the northeast. it is about saving the country. >> we have to get this under control. most conservatives believe we have to come to a point where we stand and fight. i hope this is the time. >> after president obama said it would be irresponsible and absurd
. the republicans need to be able to run against barack obama as the tax and spend liberal who keeps plunging us into debt. this would allow them to do that and still not blow up the economy. i mean, the only thing here that we know for certain is that they are going to raise the debt limit. they're going to do it. they know it. we know it. it's just a matter of how messy it's going to be before that. the way that you know republicans many my opinion are not serious, where is their list of things? if spending is such a horrible thing and we have a spending problem, not a debt problem, show us your list. what is it you would like to cut? let's see it. the last time they showed it to us, it was the ryan plan to destroy medicare and turn it into a voucher, and then they ran away from that during the presidential campaign when they should have been showing it off. if they're so into cutting the deficit and they think spend issing the problem, show it off. let's see what you got. they don't want to do it. >> what i don't understand about this is why if you believe that ultimately they're going to hav
to a new tax revenue from proposition 30 as well as spending cuts. >>> the social media is buzzing about a possible announcement by facebook. janine de la vega joins us now from menlo park with more on a mystery event that is going to take place in just a few hours, good morning. >> reporter: good morning pam, we did see several news vehicles and as the morning goes on the area is expected to fill up and that's because at 10:00 a.m. facebook is anticipating a news conference to unveil something. we don't know what that something is just yet but they say come see what we are building. most people agree they are not talking about an actual building even though they are expanding their campus. some analysts are shooting down the idea of a phone because mark zuckerberg said a phone does not make sense. facebook is his top pry yourty and -- priority and he may unveil a search engine so users would not have to leave the facebook site. it has caused the facebook stock to end on a six month high on friday and the question is, will it live up to its hype. conferences have been pretty low key but
it the curb. and many thought president obama wanted to go over in order to raise taxes. to do the same thing over the debt ceiling and get full blame for it, it could genuinely destroy the republican party, of course while destroying the economy. >> there is that little problem, for republicans. so what about this point, ezra, that the president, the federal government could easily meet its obligations on actual debt payments through bonds and that sort of thing. but it would be the spending, the discretionary spending that they would have to cut under these circumstances. so there wouldn't ever be, many republicans insist they wouldn't ever be a realistic prospect of default in this. and that is why the president uses the word "obligations," instead of the word debt because they may just agree with them that there wouldn't actually be a debt default. >> it is unclear, we literally don't know what would happen because it never happened bef e before. so a legal authority is not all obvious. so there is a question, for the treasury department, to decide if we pay off the bond holders, but not
in many years and that was thanks to new tax revenue from proposition 30 as well as spending cuts. >>> oakland police investigating a shooting that seriously injured one man. it happened about 8:00 last night on crest avenue. neighbors say they heard about 30 rounds from what sounded likes an automatic assault rifle. the victim ran. he was taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition. so far no arrests have been made. >>> well, oakland's police chief and the mayor, they are working now to stop the surge in violence. 11 people were wounded in shootings over the weekend, six people have been killed so far this year. the police are blaming a lot of the violence on a feud between rival gangs. it started when a young woman was killed last summer. since then, howard jordan says gangs have been responsible for about 90% of the violent crime. >> we know that's probably 1%, 2% of the population causing this violence. we're focused on them. chief jordan says the police department is already getting help from the chp. he plans to have more police academies and also add 70 officers.
. we do not default. we have 2 1/2 trillion dollars worth of tax revenue coming into the treasury every year. we can use some of that money to pay our interest on our debt. we will meet our obligations on our debt regardless of the debt ceiling. we will not default. that is an absolute, we will not default. the idea that we will if we don't raise the debt creel something an absolute flat out myth. >> gretchen: what else did he say you didn't agree with? >> the use of the expression, dead beat nation, that really is talking down america. the president is encouraging congress, encouraging america to pay its bills using a credit card to pay its bills, using borrowed money to pay its bills. that credit card will never be paid off and the balance on it will never be paid down. that is dead beat behavior and that should be pointed out. by using that expression, the president is talk down america. we stand not as tall in the eyes of the world when the president uses that kind of language. >> gretchen: could it also be he was talking down to republicans because he thinks right now that he has t
